Basque for kids

Different Basque communities are working with different programs to teach their children Euskara.  In Boise, their effort is highlighted with their Boise Ikastola.  In San Francisco, meanwhile, there are weekly gatherings with Goiz Eskola.  Other communities are also endeavoring to promote the language to children through their dance groups.  Inquire as to whether your club has something going already.  This website will continue to add new resources.
